The 15 Richest Black Families in the USA...
15 wealthiest black families in America.
The United States is considered the land of opportunity for millions around the world, the idea that no matter who you are, what color your skin is, or what religion you practice, anyone can achieve " the American dream" has traveled all over the world.
However, internally this might be a whole other story. In America, the average black family is only one-tenth as wealthy as the average white family. Black Americans controlled zero point 5 percent of the nation's wealth in 18 63. For nearly the same fraction of the whole population, it is a little over 1.5 percent today.
The presumption of progress following the abolition of slavery and the victories of civil rights has largely obscured the root of that stalemate. But for every advancement made by black Americans, those in positions of authority devised new forms of discrimination that were largely hidden from view and repeatedly sabotaged the economic promise of freedom.
Of the 724 billionaires in the United States, only 7 seven are black. This huge discrepancy perfectly exemplifies the scale of income inequality in the United States. Today we’re going to be breaking down the 15 wealthiest black families in the United States and of course as you’d expect the power of “celebrity” is a great forte for wealth generation in black America.
